The printmaking studio, Heretic mix collage and illustration in their designs, creating surreal imagery in trippy colours. They work from their London-based studio where they run a print service as well as working on their own commissions. They’ve made a huge range of prints and posters as well as exhibiting and even putting together installations (see pyramid below).
The collaborative element really comes across, making their work a versatile collection of different influences and ideas. Just take a look at the list of themes they talk about below and you’ll get the idea!
Even though there may be three different perspectives being shown there’s a common understanding of colour and pattern, and a playfulness that we really get on board with.
We are Luke Frost, Jon Rundall and Therese Vandling. We have existed as Heretic, an experimental illustration and screen printing studio since about 2005.
Exploring themes such as tomorrow’s symbolism, inner and outer visions, strange mysticism, the occult, folklore, psychedelia, demented cats and sex bats, creatures of space, to name but a few, our work primarily involves juxtaposing and blending elements of collage and drawing, using screen printing as much for it’s reproductive quality as for its visual qualities. We like to work on wide ranging projects from art prints and gig posters, to record covers and editorial illustration to 3D sound installations.
